"My sessions offer a unique perspective drawing from years of research and teaching that can include reflection on history, culture, biology, psychology and spirituality. I may be one of the least judgmental and most insightful professionals you will ever meet! I endeavor to help you to understand the social, cultural and family structures that have led you to seek help. Once we establish what has inhibited the core expression of all you can be and how you might love, we will work to reposition harmful and limiting paradigms. Working with me can be a deep adventure in discovering "what else is possible.""

"I believe we are born with an inherent bodily wisdom, our "bones of knowing" which helps us to distinguish which experiences allow us to expand or cause us to shrink. We are born with basic primal emotional needs for love, safety and acceptance. For many of us these needs were not met. We often come out of childhood with unmourned losses and a false self or persona. Together we can explore those deeper needs which often underlie symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress and learn to fulfill these needs as they occur in the present, taking responsibility for our own happiness."

Developmental Disorders Therapists
'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD Van Nuys), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Van Nuys; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Van Nuys.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.
